Summer Challenge: Keeping the Mind from Going on Vacation
The Summer Learning Challenge aims to keep kids engaged with fun activities, events and prizes.
Giants tickets, museum passes and other rewards await, including a chance to win a $1,000 college scholarship.
All 32 public libraries in San Mateo County from Daly City to East Palo Alto are participating in the 2017 Summer Learning Challenge -- a fun and free way to engage children and students by challenging them to read as many books as possible and to expore new activities and ideas. Sign up at summerlearners.org, at any public library or when the Bookmobile comes your way.
Participants receive a free book just for signing up.
It’s all in the name of fun but the Summer Learning Challenge offers the type of benefits parents appreciate: a halt to what’s known as the “summer slide,” or the loss in some of the achievement gains students made during the school year.
